GameStop, Amazon and Wal-Mart are signed-up as the American retail pre-order partners. GameStop's got three downloadable songs to entice your loyalty, Amazon's got an in-game guitar and a $10 voucher and Wal-Mart's just got a $10 voucher.

The most eye-catching new feature of Rock Band 3 is the keyboard peripheral. Rock Band 3 has a Pro mode, too, that uses the six-stringed guitars to actually teach you to play the instrument.
